The Paper Players #381

I haven't played at The Paper Players in a loooong time but when I saw on Kim's blog that the challenge was sewing related I decided to pull out some old neglected stamps and make a card.
The buttons and card they are on are from PTI and the other paper has a pattern image on it.  I die cut the buttons from coaster board, then again from pearl paper that I ran through my Xyron, and put them together.  I don't know why my Xyron (I have two - big and little) has been neglected either.  It made it so easy to stick those little pieces together.  The tiny attacher stapled them to the card just like they used to be.  The difficult part was coming up with a sentiment but I liked this one from CPD.

Now that I've found them again, I hope to enter more of The Paper Players challenges.

  3. My Mom had a collection of carded buttons like these - don't I wish I had them now! Yours are so lifelike, I was surprised to read you'd made them! Bobby this is such a darling card!
